Pint of Science: Our Body

Medication is becoming a large part of our day to day routines, especially as we grow older. This first talk explains some exciting research on the reasons that reduce our adherence to medication routines.

The evening will also include a talk on short-sightedness (myopia). By 2050 it is predicted that half the population will be myopic. Already in countries such as Taiwan and South Korea, over 80% of school age children have myopia. But why do we care and what can be done? This talk will explore why it is essential to slow down the runaway myopia train.
